Voice of Snow 1

Based on the theme and melodic structure of the three Crane Wife songs by The Decemberists

There is a clear voice

in the winter snow

Clad in a blue coat

pulled close to his side

A clear voice


A new voice

Under the snow-filled tree

little form

shaky song

Her eyes so large

Eyes so large and round


And the first voice

with arms so young and strong

put them all around her

and did her wrong

and he never knew

no he never knew her face


The daybreak came

with the break so white and cold

the piano playing on

she fled his arms

he asleep

the voice dreamed on

snow so white and strong

The End
